In Response To: Attempt to confirm Choctaw ancestry ()
There is a Morton listed in the Choctaw final rolls. It is a little typo spelled Morotn but it is I am sure Morton.
You should read "Black Indian Genealogy Research" by Angela Y. Walton-Raji. It is all about African-American Ancestors Among the Five Civilized Tribes. The book shows where to find and how to use the Indian Freedman Records. It also has a list of Freedman Surnames.
